Lakeland Jam Making Preserving Thermometer

Product number: 26466

Runny preserves got you in a pickle? If you’ve ever had a panful of strawberries that have refused to set, and ended up looking more like juice than jam, you’ll appreciate just how important it is to have a reliable preserving thermometer.

Why won’t my jam set?

Good question! When you’re making jam or marmalade, getting the right temperature – or setting point – is essential, and the easiest way to test for it is to have a thermometer clipped onto your pan, with the end dipped into the mixture. Your mix needs to be boiled at 105°C to make sure your jam will set, and this accurate sugar thermometer is the easiest, safest way to be certain it’s just right.

Celsius or Fahrenheit?

Whichever one you work with, this sturdy thermometer has you covered. There’s a hook on the back so it can hang conveniently on the side of your pan, meaning there’s nothing to dip in and out of a sticky, sugary mix; there’s a really clear and easy-to-read gauge in both Celsius and Fahrenheit, and there’s a handy marking for the ‘jam’ setting point, so there’s absolutely no guesswork.

For toffee and caramel too

Designed for confectioners as well as seasoned preservers, this hard-wearing sugar thermometer will ensure sweet success if you’re creating notoriously tricky treats, such as toffees, candies and caramels, and is dishwasher safe too, so it’s really easy to wash away all traces of the sticky stuff.

With insulated handle.

"Only used twice, then useless"

star star_border star_border star_border star_border

I gave this to my sister as part of her Christmas present. She used it for making two batches of marmalade and the markings came off. I replaced it with a different design - this one is a waste of money. (She loved the jam funnel fortunately!)

"The markings vanish when you use it!"

star star_border star_border star_border star_border

We bought this in store at the end of December for marmalade making. The scale has disappeared after 2 uses. I don't have a local store so can't return it without spending £10 on petrol. I expect better from Lakeland!

We're sorry this happened and we passed your feedback onto our buying team.

"Marmalade"

Worked well and took the guesswork out of the job. Although I have to admit I did do the wrinkle test as well.

"Markings wear off"

star star_border star_border star_border star_border

Like the previous reviewer, I was disappointed that all the barkings have disappeared - not heavily used, never dish washered or scrubbed. Wish there was another brand to try.

"markings disappear"

I love Lakeland. 3/4 years ago I bought their jam thermometer, but noticed that within a year or so the markings had literally boiled off up to the jam setting level and just beyond. Lakeland kindly replaced it, but guess what, it happened again. This time I was given a gift card. I am using my old thermometer which is 40 years old and sadly no longer has a handle. I hope this problem has been ironed out. We grow a lot of fruit so make up to 20 batches of jam or chutney a year, but that is not the point! On the new thermometer I can no longer see the jam marking!!
